Grand jury indicts suspect in murder of Sandia High School student


Izaiah Garcia

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A grand jury has decided there is enough evidence to prosecute the suspect in the murder of a Sandia High School student.

Izaiah Garcia, 19, has been formally indicted for the death of Sean Markey, who was shot and killed at a homecoming party in September. Investigators believe Garcia was targeting someone else, and Markey got caught in the crossfire.

He is being held behind bars until trial. Garcia is also being investigated for the murder of Cayla Campos at a Northeast Heights park a few weeks later, but has not been charged in that case.
